Capcom's legendary fighting franchise returns with the release of Street Fighter V for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Designed with exciting and accessible battle mechanics, Capcom says this latest iteration of Street Figher is the kind of fun that both beginners and veterans can enjoy.  Players can challenge friends online or compete for fame and glory on the Capcom Pro Tour.

The game will be updated free-of-charge over time, meaning that the initial game purchase is all players need to stay up-do-date with the title.  A cinematic story expansion will be released in June 2016 as a free update and over the course of 2016 (and beyond) further gameplay content, costumes, new challenges and balance system updates will continually be made available to all players.   Also, for the first time in Street Fighter history, all of the post launch gameplay content will be earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency (Fight Money).   Of course, unlockable content can also be obtained instantly using purchased in-game currency.

The first of the 2016 content updates will come in March.  That's when the in-game store opens and adds a new World Warrior to the roster – Alex.  Players who have played through the majority of the single player content at launch will have earned enough in-game Fight Money to be able to add Alex to their Street Fighter V rosters for no additional cost.

Street Fighter V for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC is rated “T for Teen" by the ESRB.
